History and Comment
Mars was Earth’s first interplanetary colony and it has always enjoyed a close relationship with Earth in even the worst of times. Although terraforming is finally beginning to pay off and the population is exploding with millions of people applying for citizenship, the air is barely breathable and can be extremely cold. Low pressure and cold-weather genetic modifications are extremely popular with parents. The planet also has a large elderly population from Earth who enjoy its relative proximity to Earth, low cost of living, and low gravity.
MarsGov is generally considered to be EarthGov’s smaller saner cousin and the two tend to act in unison.
